#852 Natural Tone Scripture Nativity

Acquired 2019

A name mentioned frequently in my nativity narrative is Maritza – a past employee of Valley Harvest. She has a tender spot in her heart for my collection and for me. Each time she brings me a gift of a nativity I am humbled at her thoughtfulness. She, most often, finds them at garage sales which is her constant pastime. Usually, she resells her finds, but nativities are gifted to me! In the beautiful set each of the nine-pieces of neutral toned cream-colored figures has Scripture inscribed on them. Some are from the Luke passage of the birth of Jesus and the shepherds visit, and some from the Matthew passage of the king’s visit. Mary is the exception and has the inscription of John 3:16, as Jesus is the Savior of the world. A gift to me, November 2019.
